Orginal (Disney) Story Plot BOOK of “Beauty and the Beast”?

Is there a book out there that has the original “Beauty and the Beast” story plot?

Note: Orginal plot — for me, anyway — is the Disney movie:

Thanks in advance. 🙂

ps. To be a smidge more clear, here are things I’m NOT looking for:
– “Beauty: A Retelling Of the Story Beauty and the Beast”
– “Beastly”

Basically, no re-tellings. The real thing. :]

Beauty and the Beast (French: La Belle et la BĂȘte) is a traditional fairy tale. The first published version of the fairy tale was a rendition by Gabrielle-Suzanne Barbot de Villeneuve, published in La jeune amĂ©ricaine, et les contes marins in 1740. The best-known written version was an abridgement of her work published in 1756 by Jeanne-Marie Le Prince de Beaumont, in Magasin des enfants, ou dialogues entre une sage gouvernante et plusieurs de ses Ă©lĂšves; an English translation appeared in 1757.

The story was passed down verbally for a long time, so there is no real “original” version, but there are many early variations. Look for the English translation of Jeanne-Marie Le Prince de Beaumont for the oldest in English.
